Looking Anew at Evangelism

Another five-star review of The Sacrament of Evangelism, by my friend Lynn Severance:

I grew up in the Catholic faith tradition. I am thus acquainted with the sacredness of “sacrament” in the context of this definition: “an outward sign, instituted by Christ to give grace.” The outward sign is visible in the ceremony or prayers said that accompany the 7 sacraments’ administrations — Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Eucharist, Penance, Extreme Unction ( Last Rites), Holy Orders, and Matrimony. All of these sacraments symbolize the grace that flows inwardly, the person of God’s Spirit strengthening an individual for his life and for his roles in life.

I am also a born again Christian who knows the sacredness in affirming that Christ is my Lord and Savior.
